The Wrinkled Peach Fungus, Rhodotus palmatus, grows scattered or in small groups on rotting hardwoods in eastern North America, North Africa, Europe, and Asia. It prefers low-lying logs in areas that are periodically flooded and that receive little sunlight, such as forest areas shaded by canopy. The color can range from salmon-orange to pink to red. The stem is sometimes seen “bleeding” a red- or orange-colored liquid. The stem is 1.5 to 3.0 cm (0.6 to 1.2 in) tall by 0.4 to 0.6 cm (0.2 to 0.2 in) thick (usually slightly larger near the base).
